Brandon Ivan is an award-winning entrepreneur and founder of 787 Coffee Co. He has made a name for himself as one of Forbes’ “Next 1000” Upstart Entrepreneurs and Inc.'s Fastest Growing Companies. His mission is to help businesses revitalize their brand through the power of emotions and human connections. 

For Brandon, branding is not just about using the right colors and words. It’s about communicating a unique set of values to both your customers and co-workers, making them feel good about themselves when they buy from you, and consistently providing them with a reason to care about you.
